Back to school I go...

So Monday I will head back to school to pursue hopefully a nursing degree. I took sometime off after my surgery and am now ready to get going again. It seems like I will never be done with school. With having to work and taking care of a family all I can seem to take is 2 classes at a time. I keep teasing that I will be lucky to be done by the time I am 45, but that's not so far away for me. I have to admit that school scares me a bit. I have never been a super smart student. I have to work really hard for the grades I've gotten and nursing is so competitve that there's no room for less than an A.

My sister Kari is also headed back to school this semester and is a little nervous about the possibility of failing and to that I say there is no failure. The only failure is in the not trying. So it make take us longer than we'd like to get the job done, but time is going to go by whether we're working at it or not. I keep telling Kari that we can do hard things. I've definetly done hard things before and I am sure there will be many more to come. I am sure lots of prayers along the way will get me where I want to be. In one of our Sunday meetings recently Eric said how proud he was of me for going back to school and he knew I could do it. I guess if nothing else I hope my exampls shows my kids that they can do anything if they put their mind to it and that it's never too late. Hopefully they will do College when they are much younger than me though.
